EMPTY MALL METROTOWN BURNABY COVID19 PANDEMIC
Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby, known simply as ‘Metrotown’ is the largest mall in BC and one of the largest shopping centers in Canada. Metrotown is PARTIALLY OPEN during the pandemic. Essential stores like Walmart, T&T, Real Canadian Super Store are open, and there are a few food vendors open in the food court and in different parts of the mall.
This video was recorded just before noon and as you can see many businesses are closed and not even offering lunch takeaway.
Tim Hortons is open in the Metrotown food court. Tim Hortons is also open at many other locations unlike McDonald’s.
The number of shoppers inside grocery stores are limited during the pandemic. At T&T the line goes very far! They also do laser temperature checks on your forehead before entering!
CHEF TONY DIM SUM METROTOWN FOOD COURT
GOOD: Unique selection of Dim Sum items
BAD: Portion size is small
Chef Tony’s Dim Sum is open at the Metrotown Food Court! They have a unique style of Dim Sum. The 6 piece Combo is a pretty good deal.
Dim Sum Combo $9
6 pieces of Dim Sum with fried rice. The server added an extra piece of siu mai no extra charge. The Dim Sum is smaller than what you’d find at a restaurant but as this is a mall food court, it’s not bad.
Ordered 6 Piece Dim Sum Combo
Siu Mai with black truffle x 2 + 1 extra free
Fried Rice x 1
Shrimp Dumpling x 2
Steam Bun filled with salty egg yolk lava. Black colored dough. Surprisingly tasty! x 1
Regular Steamed Bun x 1
$$ AFFORDABLE. Fair price. Around $10 for the Dim Sum Combo.
GOOD! Small portion size but as a combo with rice it’s not bad for a food court option.
GOOD. The server threw in an extra piece of Siu Mai.
Overall, SATISFIED. Not the best Dim Sum in town but Chef Tony has a unique style of making dumplings. Though portion sizes are small the combo is a good deal and a few of their menu items are pretty tasty.
CASH AND CARD.
